    1. 1. Social Networking/ Media for small businesses Chris Rauchle @ The Boardroom Thursday, 17 December 2009
    2. 2. Social Networking • Personal use - connecting one to one • Personal brand - name of business also a person • Broadcast to a group of interested parties • Able to do direct metrics on conversions • People trust associates more than strangers • Halo effect but also guilt by association 2
    3. 3. Social Media • Podcasts - a news feed that links to audio • Vodcasts - same but for video • Blogs - Web log • Microblogging features very short posts and is now most popular as Twitter • Emailed newsletters • All linked through social networking to your community of interest or practice 3
    4. 4. Lots of people tweet/blog/ vlog/facebook their brand 4
    5. 5. Amazing variety Far too many options - need to simplify/ choose 5
    6. 6. The Present
    7. 7. Podcasts • Upload for free to iTunes for free download • Make the item available on your website as a feed that iTunes users subscribe to • Just put up a compatible file (mp3) and they can download and import it to their device • Vodcasts are the same, just with quicktime movies • Most website hosting provides tools to manage Vodcasts and Podcasts 7
    8. 8. Blogs • Blogger, Typepad and Wordpress all host blogs on their sites for you • Most web hosting will host and provide tools for your blogs • You can blog on the run from your phone or send an email to your blog that will automatically be published • On the Mac, iWeb is free and you can upload iWebs to your Bigpond/Webcentral/MobileMe 8

    12. 12. Facebook 12
    13. 13. Why do it • Authority comes from being referred to (this is how Google assesses relevance) • Limited customer time means more interactions facilitated by IT so social interactions will be the same • Devoting our limited time to social media magnifies our influence but preserves customer care 13
    14. 14. What’s the takeaway? • Sites with low utility will have low use like a poorly designed shop (Nokia example) • Free sample: recipe, stationary, cartoon, image that prompts recall and volunteering of your details to others • Is a little slice of ‘the truth’ about you - helps you remain top of mind with customers and potential customers and is more credible and immediate than a blog or newsletter 14
    15. 15. Uncomfortable with trivia? • Facebook used to be a ‘work’ site and was distinguished from which was primarily for high school children - it now has more than 200M members • Twitter has more than 12M users • Linkedin has been around for over 8 years and has over 50M members 15

Social Media • Public brands for small and large business people: • marthastewart, timferris, davidpogue, oprah • A lot of work: Our Marketing Plan • Lots of distraction from looking for work and building your business...try to segment your time on these services to prevent calling interesting and unimportant tasks ‘work’ 19
    20. 20. What’ll you do/not do Small businesses have to do at least some of these activities to grow. This is the essence of social network/ media marketing 20
    21. 21. Google Favourite Places • State of the art in Japan ten years ago • Telstra tried and failed to implement working model • QR (Quick Response) codes require a camera phone and links to rich this case Google is using its Favourite Places and has paid reviewers for the obvious links but you can add your own 21
